FIFA World Cup 2018 once again a Europe vs South America battle

Which player will win the Golden Boot at the World Cup

Janne Anderson's men knocked out Switzerland in the round of 16-becoming the first Swedish team to win consecutive World Cup games for the first time in 60 years-but at 25/1 they have the longest odds to win the World Cup of any of the teams left in the competition.

Lawro was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan in Moscow.

"They are always more than the sum of their parts".

"I couldn't be happier for the team and for the whole country, the fans, everyone involved", he said.

Brazil are well-known for their flamboyant football, but they also possess an excellent defence which has been breached just once at the World Cup.

Russian Federation have been one of the surprise packages at this summer's World Cup, sensationally dumping former World Champions Spain out of the tournament in the round of 16.

Belgium have a similar attacking outlook, but have been a lot more open. Romelu Lukaku presents something different and Belgium's two wide players - Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens - offer more than Mexico's Hirving Lozano and Carlos Vela.

Kane goes on to state that his partner keeps saying that it feels like the team is "on a boys' holiday" with everyone "just playing Fortnite" and he says he wants to "enjoy it while it lasts"!

Angara told CNN Sports Desk that with "King" James joining the Lakers , he expects the resurrection of the NBA's biggest rivalry. The San Antonio Spurs star has been tipped to move this summer after his relationship broke down with the franchise.

The popular tabloid, known for its provocative headlines, ran with a front-page picture of England captain Harry Kane and the words "Go Kane!", a pun on Colombia's reputation as a drug exporter. They have good players and they seem to be very organised.

And Rooney, who retired from the England team after Euro 2016, believes they are right to fancy their chances of going far.

The Tottenham wing-back was among the best players on the pitch as Gareth Southgate's side were held 1-1 over 120 fractious minutes in Moscow.

Croatia really anxious me in the last 16 against Denmark because they just disappeared in the second half.

The way the draw has opened up for England is a massive carrot for them, and I think they will continue their progress.

Soccer's world body said it "strongly rebukes" comments by the Argentina great criticising American referee Mark Geiger's handling of England's win against Colombia in the World Cup round of 16.

The performance summed up the hit and miss nature of this Croatia side, who can dazzle in one game and drive their fans to despair in the next. What we know is this Russian side is more than willing to sit back in two blocks of five and grind for 90 minutes or more.
